Default Bad Color..I'm stumped..

I cant figure out where to go with the color on this. I was shooting in RAW. The original had a pink cast over the whole image, sodium vapor lamps.

Latest try...

Don't think so much about the overall color. Concentrate instead on doing something about that wacky blue surrounding the light on top of the blue flag.

Of course, the overall color is pretty wild; I only spend maybe a minute on it but I couldn't find a change worth making. Tough one.

Best I could come up with working on the original reject, using remove colour cast clicking on the left grey area just below the yellow stripe on the nose and adjusting in levels PSE7, if you shot it in raw you should be able to alter the white balance for better results.

Thanks guys for the tips, I went back to the original again and played with it, and it got in!
